The 'Add New Record' form is displayed.
Enter the information for the event, then press the 'Add New Record' button. One of the required fields is the PIN, which you can use later to edit the data for the event. Each event can have a different PIN, if desired.
Adding an Event - Unable to accept dates
I can't get the submit form to accept dates. The instructions seem to call for
Begin: 2002-10-11 End: 2002-10-12.
(Starting October 11, ending October 12 2002) but it won't accept this.
Am I reading this wrong?
The dates specified above should work. (Just in case there was a problem, I did a cut and paste with the above dates and experienced no problem adding a new event).
Other possibilities why it may not have worked:
One of the dates may have contained a space character,
or an underscore may have been used instead of a hyphen.
The event may not have been accepted because one of the required fields (i.e., begin date, event name, country, e-mail contact, and PIN) was not specified.
In any case, after the form has been filled out, press the 'Add New Record' button (near the bottom of the page). Either a confirmation message (e.g., "Thank you for adding a record to the Event Database...") or an error message (e.g., "Unable to add a record because...") is then returned.
If you are still unable to add an event, please tell me exactly what the error message is.
Do I have a password for Admin validation, or is that something you do? I know my password number, but not my validation password.
Functions on our web site identified with 'admin' are administrator functions that only my wife or I can access. I validate the data by verifying that fields are consistent, there are no blatant typos, and that the data generally looks okay.

Can't find our club
I just entered our event but could not select our club
from your list. You can find our club in the EAASDC directory.
Could you please put our club on your list.
Thanks in advance.
To have a club listed on our site, someone (from the club)
needs to fill out the form on the club database portion
of our site.
After the club is in the database,
it automatically appears in the dropdown list
for the event database 'edit' form.

Deleting an Event
I recently added an event to your directory and I
made a mistake with the web page link. Could you please delete it? I'll notify you again when the proper one is up and running.
I have deleted the entry. However, in the future, please be aware that I'd really prefer you to edit or delete the events that you've added.
To delete an event that you've added, do the following:
Locate the event in the database;
Click on the event name link to bring up the full page about the event;
Click the 'delete' link (near the bottom of the entry);
A confirmation pop-up dialog box will appear prompting for your PIN. Enter your PIN then click the 'Delete Record' button.
The record will be deleted.

Don't have a club
I'd like to add the Tennessee State Convention to your list of events, but find that I must first register my "club". I'd prefer to register my state association, but many of the fields that do not apply such as night are not null fields. Can you give me some instruction as to how to get around this?
The "club" field is not a required field, hence no value is
required. Just leave it as "-".
We do not (yet) have a database table for "associations",
but you can add this information to the "Other Information"
field, if you'd like.
Please add your event with the club field left as "-".
The only required fields are "Date", "Event Name", "Country", and "PIN". Values in the other fields can be entered, or left blank.
Editing an Event
How do I edit my record in the Event Database?
Find your record within the database (i.e., do a
Click on the event | group name to display the entire (full page) record;
Click the 'edit' link (near the bottom of the large framed box);
Enter the Personal Identification Number (PIN) that you gave when you
first created the record;
Make the appropriate changes, then click the 'Update Record' button.
I have two flyers that I would like to add to your events
calendar - how do I do it. One will need to be scanned into the
computer and the other I made up in Printmaster. Please let me know
how to download them to you with out messing up your web pages.
Currently we do not accept flyers (from others) to be posted on our web site. This may change in the (far) future.
You are free to add your 'events' to our 'Event Database', but the flyers must reside on some other web site. You can add links to the flyers within the Event Database.
Flyers on the web should be in one of these formats:
HTML, PDF, JPG or GIF.
Search by Caller
Can I search the Event Database by caller?
The second menu line above the Events Database is a "Find by" menu.
Options for "Find by" include: Event Name, Caller or Cuer, Country, State or Province and Record ID.
